There are said to be two billion pallets in circulation around the world, and two/thirds of them are only used once. Designer Pierre Vedel approaches the problem by designing a complete armchair built from exactly one of the ubiquitous pallets .

All Natural Graffiti
Unlike spray paint, moss graffiti is all natural and healthy to work with. You can paint words or images, and the moss fills in like magic! It’s easy as pie to whip up a batch of moss paint.
Here’s how, in your blender, combine:
One can of cheap beer or 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
A few handfuls of moss
One teaspoon of sugar
Blend until the mixture is smooth, and you’re ready to get painting! You can use a brush to paint your moss onto concrete walls, rocks, or brick. Mist the moss once a day to help it thrive, and soon your green graffiti will take hold! If you’re looking to take this project to the streets, use caution- we don’t want to be responsible for any vandalism charges!

publicdesignfestival:

The project by Stefan Benchoam and Christian Ochaita aims at answering to the lack of public spaces and infrastructures in Guatemala City (Guatemala). It suggests playful uses of public areas with the collaboration of other artists, collectives and people, to generate socialization.

Who said that it is impossible to enjoy the sun and water in between the lanes?
